Open Innovation for Small Business

Open Innovation for Small Business | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Open innovation may seem to be the preserve of big business. After all, it is often associated with long established monstrosities like Proctor and Gamble and IBM. But it is an approach that can be used by all companies, especially start-ups and small businesses.

Encouragement goes beyond catching people doing things right

When I was a young manager, I read “The One-Minute Manager” by Blanchard and Johnson. I learned to “manage by walking-around” and “catch people doing things right”.

As a motivational tool, catching people doing things right is effective. But it doesn’t work long term if all you is praise their results.

Innovative Immersion

Try this: Take a group of senior leaders to Walmart and give them $50 to buy a complete outfit, all the way down to their underwear and shoes. Then, send them off to the fitting rooms to put on the new clothes and dispatch their own garments into a sack. Once they are transformed into the role of a mass-market customer, they are each given $100 to buy one week of groceries for a family of four. How do you think people in your business would do on this customer immersion?
